Presence & Charisma When Working With Groups

Contrary to popular belief, presence and charisma are not something you are born with. We discussed in the last video that being a human artist is just as important as being a technical artist and that combining the two would give you a perfect balance. Learning how to be charismatic will get you extremely far in an industry where half your job is talking to people and make sure you are getting your point across in a clear and concise way.

Here are some tips on communicating and working with groups:

  • Put down the camera
  • Smile, be positive (think puppy)
  • Amplify/Project
  • Be present
  • Use names (warmth + presence)
  • Power/Authority with warmth
  • Power without warmth = arrogance
  • Have fun/show your personality
